Pujara delighted with performance

New Delhi: Cheteshwar Pujara, who scored 206 not out and 41 not out in the first Test match against England in Ahmedabad and was awarded the man of the match award for his super performance, has expressed his delight after getting the award.

India thrashed England by nine-wickets on the fifth day of the first Test match at Motera to take a 1-0 lead in the four-match series.

After enforcing the follow-on, India bowled 154.3 overs in the second innings to dismiss England, and then chased 77 to take a 1-0 lead.

"I enjoyed batting in the middle and things went right for me, I would like to congratulate our bowlers for taking 20 wickets in the match because the pitch really slowed up and it was hard work for them," Pujara said.

"I was out of cricket for more than a year because of injury and I am very happy that I got a double hundred in the match," he added.
